Welcome to the DPL...

Welcome to the Damsel Preservation League or "DPL" for short. Contained herein, you'll find a multitude of damsels of all ages worthy of preservation, as well as many links to current artists & writers of the DID genre, and many old-school favourites. Although this is basically a research type blog, there may be some occasional "mature" themed comics so, beware of this. Also this blog & is moderated to keep the spam to a minimum. The majority of the images are ones I've personally "rebuilt" from either my own collection or scans found elsewhere on the 'net. Any applicable copyrights belong to the owners and I make no money from them. Also note that this blog is still a work in progress and will be added to as I continue along...

Mary's Wild West Peril


There's a lot of bonus "goodies" to this one. I've also included a detail panel from the context page, which this story afforded me the rare opportunity to do so. From WOW Comics #52 (Fawcett~March, 1947) comes this tale of modern-day cowboys taking on (eventually) ancient Indians, with a little help from "you-know-who". Beware of cactus peril, bondage, gassing, hand-gagging and a true "cliff-hanger"! OY!











How about a smattering of details? Of course...

Details and cover, which I partially restored...

Mary Meets The Pill Pusher


Bizarre Mary Marvel tale from WOW Comics #46 (Fawcett~August, 1946.) At the rate this guy can pitch pills, the Cubs should've drafted him a long time ago (kidding...)
